Kentucky holds its presidential primary for Democrats tomorrow with Hillary Clinton trying to put an end to Bernie Sanders' recent string of victories. The fallout from Kentucky's last general election is still reverberating in the Bluegrass State. It’s been a messy transfer of power as the historically Democratic state voted in a Republican governor.

The new governor, Republican Matt Bevin, is still feuding with the previous one, Democrat Steve Beshear, and his son — who also happens to be the current attorney general. Ryland Barton from Here & Now contributor Kentucky Public Radio says each governor claims the FBI is investigating the other.
